UtterBerry intelligent wireless sensor system
UtterBerry is a patented intelligent wireless sensor system which works on extremely low power. Fitting in the palm of the hand and weighing less than 15 grams, UtterBerry sensors are the smallest and lightest wireless sensors in the world. Despite their size, they work to sub-millimetre precision, measuring multiple variables; collecting, processing and interpreting data at source and transmitting information in real time. UtterBerry sensors also analyse data trends to alert of pending and future events.
Some major advantages of the system are the ease with which UtterBerry sensors can be installed, deployed and maintained. Self-calibrating, the sensors can be placed into position by one person on a single site visit, using a pole for hard to reach areas. The system is also robust, automatically optimising communication within the network and continuing to function in the event of individual sensors failing. The low power consumption of UtterBerry sensors allows them to be deployed for years without the need for maintenance visits or battery changes. UtterBerry sensors are suitable for a wide range of industries and applications. They have been successfully deployed on tunnelling projects.
The Judge's said, “Only very occasionally does an innovation occur which is not only brilliant in its inception, but also serves to celebrate the excitement of major infrastructure projects. The Utterberry sensor combines expertise in micro-electronics with a practical understanding of digital applications in monitoring civil engineering works. The judging panel was impressed by Heba’s individual achievement and journey from an initial concept through to practical application. The benefits are clear and convincing.”
